I ran into the same problem trying to install under Redhat 9. The
solution was to snatch Redhat's patch for pyOpenSSL and apply it to the
pyOpenSSL_AG tarball:

cd /tmp
rpm -ivh
rpm -ivh pyOpenSSL_AG-0.5.1-1.src.rpm
cd /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
tar zxvf pyOpenSSL_AG-0.5.1.tar.gz
cd pyOpenSSL_AG-0.5.1
patch -p1 < ../pyOpenSSL-0.5.1-openssl097.patch
rpmbuild -ba pyOpenSSL.spec

rpm -ivh /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/pyOpenSSL_AG-0.5.1-1.i386.rpm

Done! I reran the install.sh script from the AccessGrid distribution,and
everything went smoothly.

Here is the Redhat patch:
